Twins turning four today.

Today was the twins fourth birthday. I can't believe how fast it went. They are sooo big now. As I have gone through these pictures I just can't believe how time has flown. My babies are really growing up now. Just a few pictures to share....

Me right after I gave birth to the twins. I was so shocked that it happened that day. Totally unexpected. I thought I had at least three more weeks. They came at 33 weeks. I had no idea that I was having true labor pains and not the fake kind. I was uncomfortable but knew that being pregnant with twins was supposed to hurt - so I just chauked it up to pregnancy pain.

Braxton weighing in at 4lb 12oz. I was told that was big for a twin at 33 weeks. Jennica had been sitting on his head for all those months so we had to work on his neck coordination for awhile. I loved all of his thick dark hair.

Jennica weighing in at 3lbs 15oz. She gave us more of a scare. She had breathing problems and was almost moved to Utah Valley. Luckily that didn't happen and she remained at American Fork Hospital.

When they were well enough to share a crib I felt better about that. They seemed to be more comfortable with it.

Baylee meeting her new brother and sister. They usually made all the kids wear masks.
We were in the hospital from April 12th to May 7th. It was sure good to get them home. Except Jennica was still under 5 lbs and Braxton was almost 6 lbs. It was scary having such little bodies to take care of. I remember being so excited when they both hit 8 lbs.

That is so fun to see those cute little babies. I think they made me so baby hungry that Sierra came along nine months later:)
